This sermon includes the sermon outline and the full sermon transcript. Below you will see a preview of the outline and a portion of the full sermon.
"There was a young man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, 'Father, give me my share of the estate.' So he divided the property between them." Luke 15:11,12 (NIV)
Our lives get out of balance when we disconnect from our Heavenly Father.
1. STOP RACING LONG ENOUGH TO RECOGNIZE WHY YOU'RE RACING
"Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living." Luke 15:13 (NIV)
• Misplaced values
"I've learned why people work so hard to succeed; it's because they envy the things their neighbors have." Eccl. 4:4 (GN)
"What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?"
Mark 8:36 (NIV)
• Misguided voices
2. STOP RACING AND REALIZE WHERE YOU ARE
"When he came to his senses, he said, 'How many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death!'" Luke 15:17 (NIV)
Kerry! Yow! Dude! You're up, man! Our part's over. You're up! I ain't got nothing.... (Laughter) Brother.... Hold on. (Makes phone call.)
Hey man, it's Randy!
Hey Randy! How are you doing, buddy?
Man! Where are you, dude?
Hey, man. I'm just tuning up one of my friend's cars. You know that I love to work on cars. It's kind of one of my spiritual gifts is to work on sports cars.
Come on, man! Do you know what time it is? It's time to preach!
Oh, I completely forgot. Why don't you just have Pastor Stan do another song?
Pastor Stan's not here either, man!
Oh. Tell you what. I'm just outside of Conroe. I'll be there in two minutes.
See you later!
Yah! Whew! That felt great! (Applause) I whooped you!
The best man won, I have to say!
Now it's time for you to hand over the keys! Hand them over.
Oh, do I really have to?
Yah, you do, because I've got to get them back to the owners because we just borrowed these cars, you know, so.... Thanks, buddy!
In fact, I do want to thank the owners. This car right here, the Mazda, is one of the types of cars used in the first movie, The Fast and the Furious, and the Mitsubishi Evolution is the new star of the 2 Fast and 2 Furious. In fact I've heard that the Evolution is not even out in the states yet. It's just now coming out, so this is brand new. So I want to thank Seth Thompson and Mark Keough for letting us have this, and we were only supposed to put five miles on it so it's right at the limit. I think there is only fifty miles - so - just we added a few to it. No, not really.
